Schumacher


Renowned fabric and wallpaper company Schumacher has a new website. It’s a soft launch with many more features to come but already I’ve lost myself in the absolutely beautiful lines they carry. Schumacher have the hottest designs out there at the moment. KWID, Matthew Patrick Smyth and Jamie Drake join a long line of the world’s best designers who have contributed to their ranges. Think Mario Buatta, Sister Parish, Chuck Fisher, Paul Poiret, Dorothy Draper, Saul Steinberg, and Frank Lloyd Wright. The pattern that is flying around the design blogosphere as the must have “it” pattern, Chiang Mai Dragon, is one of theirs of course. Beautiful site, beautiful product. Thanks Andrew from Schumacher for emailing us with news of the launch.

Passementerie

Passementerie, the decorative use of trims made from gimp, cord, beads, braids, etc. Sounds simple doesn't it. Not when you linger over these images from Spina Design. In their own words "A vibrant and dynamic duo, who have revolutionised the perception of accessories and the detailing in interior design. Using radically different mixtures of hard and soft materials together, they add precious materials and objects to their designs, not seen before in the accessory world. They have revived the ancient craft of passementerie to a new level gaining the respect as a new art form." Their work is a feast for the eyes.
